I had never heard of Ghost Slugs and had to do a bit of research.
Identifying the they are indeed Ghost Slugs appears to be a difficult task...thus the name Ghost Slug. They live deep in soil and rarely come to the surface from my reading. They consume earthworms.
Many people mistake the Field Slug for a Ghost Slug.
Field Slug can be controlled with normal slug deterrents.
Best of luck and thank you for bringing me 'a new one'!

I'm listing an article for you and a link about slug control.
